    Sack from Santa for my Boyfriend...

    Hello all, im new to the forum and really want to get prepared for christmas this year, so expect to see me asking lots of questions!

    This year will be mine and my boyfriends 1st Christmas together and I want to make it really really special and one to remember, so im going all out this year!

    I've been looking around and want to get him a personalised sack to put presents from Santa in and have found one measuring 58x92cm, but the problem im having is thinking of things to put in it.

    I don't want anything too amazing in the sack from santa, just like novely gifts, games, boxers etc. but I lack the imagination to fill the whole sack!
    Any idea's of what I can fill it with?

    If it helps... he's 20 years old and an Arsenal supporter!
    Thankyou!

    Well Im around that age group and I think a lot of guys like me are into videogames and things. If he is, there are a lot of videogame themed pj pants (Halo, Mario, Xbox360, Wii, etc etc) that you can pick up for around 10 dollars. What other things does he like?

    Yeah he likes videogames (good idea), he's always playing football manager!!
    Ummmmm, football is all he's into really and he's got all things Arsenal (he litters my bedroom with his football junk!) so don't really want to get him anything else Arsenal related.
    He likes alcohol!! hehe!!
    But apart from that, im really stumped as what else to fill the sack with.

    So far the list consists of:
    *Shower gel
    *Deoderant
    *Toothpaste (all boring stuff so far)
    *Themed Boxers
    *Fudge set
    *Arsenal Top Trumps
    *Some sort if adult game ;P

    That's all I can think of, Im also struggling with propper presents from me, but im just trying to get the sack sorted 1st before worrying about all that!

    I thought about a photo themed present of me and him (keyring, photo frame etc.)
    But I dont think its really enough to fill that big sack I intend to buy, maybe I should try getting a smaller sack.

    What does everyone put in their bf's sacks?
    Thanks for the help so far though, its much appreciated!

    I've never put things in a sack. I've just had them appear under the tree on Christmas morning. It sounds very stressful trying to fill a whole bag! Do you plan to do this every year? Are you having a stocking for him, too?

    Trust me, it is! And yeah I do plan to do it every year. When we were younger we had a sack of presents from Santa, and then the presents under the tree were from family/friends and I just want to carry it on because its a nice idea (well it is in my opinion)

    I just want it to be brimming with nice little presents, but so far I've just conjoured up crappy ones :(
    Perhaps its wise I downscale the size of the sack, because in the future, its going to get harder and harder to fill!

    I never heard of that. It's always nice to continue traditions from your childhood. Filling up a bag that size is much easier with children's toys- they're bigger and cost less. I would think downsizing would be a good idea. Was your sack as big as the one you're getting your boyfriend? And if so, did the amount of things in it diminish the older you got?

    I'm actually doing a "gamer kit" in a box for my brother-in-law this year for Christmas. He LOVES video games; his favorite is Call of Duty, and since Walmart has CoD pj pants, I'm going to get some of those for him. I'm also going to get him a couple of his favorite energy drinks, some candy bars, a thin blanket and pillow for those late-nights where he stays up late gaming and falls asleep on the couch... I might make him some kind of gamer keychain, or get him one of those game keychains; last year I found an Atari controller keychain for my DH, but I don't think my BIL is into the old school games.
    I'm not sure how I'll package it yet; I want to think of some kind of creative way to do it, but I don't know yet.

    Do you think your BF might like that kind of thing?

    aftershave
    my bf smokes so i get him a new zippo lighter - if you search on ebay also, you can get them persoanlised
    either a personalised mug or pint glass
    my daughter this year has brought her dad a model car which is exactly the same as what her dad drives
    dvds, maybe favorite box set
    cds
    hair clippers set
    belt
    t shirts
    pair of jeans

    Wow your boyfriend sounds quite a lot like mine. Just replace Arsenal with Ajax(thankfully mine is not that into memorabilia.)

    If he's not playing Hattrick http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hattrick online yet, maybe you can make him a coupon for a 3 month membership(You can play for free, but for €10 you can get all sorts of features.) My boyfriend loves football manager and loves Hattrick too.

    Maybe some new gear for his pc(if he has one) is nice too. Like a keyboard or a mouse(some are not that expensive).

    Does he like comics or something like that?

    Maybe a nice picture of you/you two together in a frame?

    Thanks!!
    I've never heard of Hattrick so will look into that!
    No he doesn't really like comics, but he's easily amused by any sort of cartoon animal that speaks orientated DVD's (he's so childish!)
    So I've got him G-Force on PS3
    Happy Feet DVD
    Another Talking penguin DVD (can't remember the name of it)
    A 'Pinga' teddy (coz he's already got pingu)
    Madagascar 2
    2 pairs of Mr Men boxers
    tubes of sweets

    Thats all so far, but I have found these IQ puzzles just to fill it out which are good, its like a bent bit of metal wire with a sort of loop thing on it, and you've got to get the loop off!
    They're hard but something a bit different (ebay them, I think it only cost me 4 including postage)

    Like I said, I want to get a personalized sack, but want to get everything for it 1st before I know what size to get.
    Although I suppose it'll look very generous with presents flowing out of the sack!

    Its so hard! All I've been thinking about is what I'm going to put in his sack and not really worrying about what I'm going to buy him for his actual christmas presents fopr under the tree!!

    Thanks for all the advise so far though, its really helping!!
